"This is a historical moment for carnival worldwide since it is the first time that a stadium has been built outside of the Caribbean with Carnival in mind; keeping in mind that carnival has been exported from the Caribbean for almost 45 years. Broward Caribbean Carnival is the model carnival of the future and finally we have a venue thanks to Broward County and its hardworking staff and our Sponsors throughout the years. With the wide range of cultures that we are afforded in Broward County it encourages us to build bridges between them. This is our version of Super Bowl; Carnival in Broward County now in its 6th year has been endorsed by the Broward County . Many cities are now jumping on board before it’s too late.” says Andy Ansola President/CEO of BCCI.

“The Broward Caribbean Carnival is an event which will bring more business to the City of Lauderhill , creating new business opportunities for our Chamber Members to partner with others to help their business grow. We are looking forward to the business opportunities and hosting this world class event”. Sharon Trepiccione, Vice President of Lauderhill Chamber/ Manger VP Bank Atlantic .
